Lets start off with the bad parts of this Lower East Side eater. Now that I think about there is only one. is the place is way to small and the second is the seating is way to close to each other. With that out of the way lets get to the goods. The Design of the place is amazing I think its is a work of art, you have a great feeling the second you walk in to the place. But the food is not as a good as the layout and desgin. But what can I say when my dinner and drink cost no more then $5.00 I am not really going to out this place down. This is the ideal match.com date spot, it looks high-end but with good pricing. The spot you can take several dates to and not go broke.

Late Night eating in New York city.

For me Grif dogs has always been that late night eat when you were just sick of a slice of pizza. When I first found out about this place I was so excited to eat there. Grif dogs in some ways lived up the hype but at the same time had some huge down falls. So here are my true thoughts – for 1 who really wants to pay 2.50 for a plain hot dog I mean come on it’s a hot dog!!!!! Second the place was  not clean at all I guess thats what you get from a late night place in the LES.  But on the upside the concept of Grif Dogs is great. 4crifdogs.jpgI like the crazy style of hot dogs they put together. Such as – The Chang- Bacon Wrapped dog topped  with kimchee  or the Spice Redneck – A house dog, bacon wrapped w/chili , cole slaw, and Jalapenos.  Or if you are really in the mood maybe you can get one of their stoner packs, which is sort of a grab bag of eats – this is how the describe  it “A mistery grab bag of eats – we won’t tell you what you are getting but we guarantee it will fill the moderately stoned dude”

So my take on Grif Dogs is eat at your own risk. The dogs are right and the price is wrong. You make the choice.
